CSI Focus PFO, Frankfurt, Germany: Catheter Interventions in Congenital, Structural and Valvar Heart Disease

Dear Colleagues,

In October 2016 the FDA finally gave the green light to St. Jude Medical's Amplatzer device for patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure! It is the first device of its kind to be approved in the US but it is likely that others will follow in the near future. PFO-closure has been controversial over the past 10 years but this nod from the FDA makes it one of the most important topics of this year. It is likely to trigger further development, techniques and implementation worldwide and this is the reason we dedicated a full day program to this topic at CSI 2017. The meeting was a great success covering everything there is to know about PFO closure including indication, imaging, device selection, technique and complication management. Live cases formed an important part of this learning experience.

We look forward to seeing you at CSI Focus PFO 2018 in Frankfurt on June 27, and hope you will stay on for the flagship conference CSI 2018 from June 27-30!

Horst Sievert, Mario Carminati, Neil Wilson, Shakeel A. Qureshi
